LIVE ANIMALS

What our programs look like

All of our programs are high-energy, interactive, and fun! Our staff and volunteers are all trained to our high standards to provide the best possible educational experience for audiences of all kinds. You have never been so excited to learn about wildlife!

EDUCATORS IN ACTION

Any Location

Whether you are next door, across town, or in a different state, we will travel to (almost) any location to bring live animals to your event.

Any Event

From school events to nature centers, from private gatherings to large festivals, we have literally done it all. Our programs can be customized  to fit your needs, venue, and audience.

Always Exciting

Our amazing presenters are engaging, enthusiastic, and knowledgable.  Our live animals can make any event a special and memorable experience. 

Always Evolving

We make sure that our programs reflect the latest in scientific findings. We strive to teach every audience member at least one new piece of information that they didn’t know before. 

We bring live animals to you !

We connect people to the environment by teaching about the other creatures that share our space. We hope that by connecting with our ambassadors and learning their personal stories, audience members will understand the importance of conservation.

*Please note, we do NOT allow touching of any of our ambassadors for their safety and for yours.  It also sends the wrong message (especially to children) to allow "petting" of our ambassadors.  Our goal is to teach respect of wildlife and wild places.
